UAS Program

Unmanned Aircraft Systems

An emerging component of the Wildland Fire Service, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Pilot provides data to tactical and strategic decision makers and is responsible for flying, managing, and coordinating Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) missions on wildland fire incidents.

Per the NIFC:

"UAS can positively impact every resource program by utilizing state of the art equipment. UAS derived data and imagery empowers scientists, incident personnel, and senior leaders to make informed decisions based on precise and real-time information. Data gathered from UAS is unique due to the ability of the aircraft to fly low, slow, and for long periods of time while collecting high-resolution imagery and sub-centimeter data. "

Providing IR reconnaissance as well as aerial ignitions, The Arrowhead IHC is proudly UAS capable.
